Working hard on our new Album
May 25, 2018

We are super excited to be working on our new album. Bass and drums are done. Guitars need 2 more songs and solos. Vocals starting soon. We couldn't have gotten here without all of you. Fund if you can. If not a share and a like is also a big help to us. The perk that is our favourite is the show, with the pie in the face a close second :)
